The Finnieston Crane is the international symbol of Glasgow. A representation of the City's proud maritime and industrial heritage, the crane is also a marker for the future of a dynamic and changing city.
The Big Cran Company CIC was established to preserve the Finnieston Cran for future generations and realise its potential as a community asset.

The Big Cran' fills everyone in the city with a sense of nostalgia and wonder. The people who worked on the crane and in other parts of our maritime industry continue to fill us with a sense of pride and identity. We want to share these evocative stories, including the heartwarming story that Dorothy shared about her father Harry who operated the Big Cran in the 1960's.
